Eco Hub at Lordship Recreation Ground, Haringey, London

The new Eco-Hub is the centrepiece of the regeneration and transformation of the historic Lordship Recreation Ground, and has been designed to exemplary sustainable standards. Commissioned by Haringey Council and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund Parks for People programme, Big Lottery and the Greater London Authority. It will provide teaching space for environmental education, a multi-purpose community space for community organisations including the Lordship Rec mother and toddler group, a public cafe near the playground and the lake, with kitchen and public WCs, and a boot room for Park volunteers. From the outset, detailed consultation with Friends of Lordship Rec, local user groups, environmental education teachers and officers at LB Haringey, helped develop a pragmatic building brief and set out the core aims of community involvement and a truly sustainable building design for the Eco-Hub. Local people joined the construction team to build the strawbale walls.

Dartmouth Avenue

The first of three schemes undertaken by Greenoak Housing Association and architect Jon Broome. The aim was to develop a replicable model to reduce emissions and other environmental impacts in mainstream housing by incorporating cost effective and trouble free measures. The emphasis is on reducing energy demand by creating a well insulated and airtight envelope. The properties in this development range in size from 80m2 2 bed dwellings to 108m2 4 bed dwellings. The average floor area and energy use per dwelling has been used in this entry.

Grove Cottage

Extension & Refurbishment of Victorian Townhouse using Passivhaus methodology and CarbonLite guidance. Certified to the Passivhaus Institute's new EnerPHit (refurbishment) Standard. [NEW:Passivhaus Trust awards shortlisted project - presentation available on these pages].PHPP certification is based on 20 C, rather than the 21 C the house was heated to during 2010/11. Forecasts are based on a 'typical year' rather than the 'actual' year being monitored. Measured data here is from 2005/06 (before) and 2009/10 (after). Measured room temperatures show an average of 21 degrees centigrade during the heating season. Please note the final air leakage as certified under EnerPHit was an N50 of 1.0 ACH. When adjusted for 2010 average monthly temps.& an internal temp. of 21 C, PHPP predicted a space heat demand of 36kWh/m2.a whereas 35kWh/m2.a was measured.

Low Energy Home - Hay Tor

Energy upgrade of 1950's concrete bungalow. We were trying to achieve the best available insulation (u-values) in all areas and good airtightness within budget restrictions. We are very pleased with the result just over a year after the start of the Retrofit, which makes the home much more comfortable.

2050 Now! Achieving the standards for 2050, and the potential role for innovative heating solutions in thermally improved homes

The project will be improving four homes to different levels and exploring the performance of new heating solutions to achieve the optimum balance of energy performance vs. heating input for these different technologies. The three main innovative heating technologies in this project are Baxi's Ecogen domestic CHP (dCHP), Baxi's Ambiflo ASHP and Nuaire's Sunwarm (combined positive input ventilation, solar thermal heating and solar hot water). The dCHP units will be installed in relatively worse performing households and the ASHP units in well insulated houses to understand the level of performance needed from homes to create the right environment for these technologies to achieve significant carbon savings.

A2 Dominion- Northholt,

This typical semi-detatched property has poor orientation for exploiting solar gain and the residents will remain in their home during the works, making this a particularly hard to treat property. The rewards however are great, with approx 5.9 million semi detatched properties in England which could be treated similarly. We aim to deliver a highly cost effective and replicable solution, using innovative solutions such as the solar shed , blown underfloor insulation, cork external insulation and bio-foam loft insulation in a holistic design approach. The proposals have been detailed and specified with a strong emphasis on UK based expertise and technologies.

Planned occupancy : For the SAP and PHPP modelling an occupancy of 2.1 people has been assumed as per the TSB competition requirements. For the hot water assumptions for sizing the solar thermal system an occupancy of 3 people was assumed which we feel is a more realistic figure for a 3 bedroom house.

Addressing Energy Consumption and Climate Change Adaptation in non-South facing, post-Decent Homes properties.

The project property is an east-west facing, brick cavity construction, mid terrace house built in 1992. This type and era of dwelling correspond to approximately 100,000 similar social properties in England alone. We have developed a holistic strategy that will reduce the CO2 emissions of our proposed property by 80% whilst addressing how existing homes can adapt to climate change in the future. Our proposal is a combination of existing technologies used along side new innovative solutions to form a comprehensive strategy to reduce heating, hot water and electricity use. The underlying strategy is replicable across all terraced housing.

  • Airtightness : 6.76 m³/m².hr @ 50 Pascals

Planned occupancy : The current tenants have lived at the property for nearly 17 years. The presence of a long term, sitting tenant will help the team to collect valuable operating energy use data and demonstrate the impact of our behavioural change measures. It is proposed that the tenants will remain throughout phase 2. Close communication and considerate construction practices will help to avoid decanting the residents. We believe this is important to enhance the scalability of our proposals.
